Water Consumption

rising in markets outside the US and EU

1 billion people have no access to safe drinking water

1.5 have limited access

80% of diseases are contributed to lack of clean, pure drinking water

50% of hospital beds are occupied by water related illness, human tradegy, financial burden

Every 15 seconds a child dies due to lack of clean water

By 2015 clean water should be available to hald the people around the world suffering from a shortage of drinking water

How do we get water to the people?

We don't

It needs to be their responsibility to do it

What can be done to clean the water?

Solar water disinfection

distilled by the sun

only 3 million using this method

The problem is with training

Monitoring – weather changes

WADI

water problems can not be solved with our western approach

People need to learn how to do it themselves for it to be effective

UV sensor measures the rays that will disinfect

Smily face. When your water bottle smiles at you – the water is clean

Establish a program similar to "One Laptop per child"

Ideally WADI should be part of a first aid kit

no more waiting lines at distribution trucks, after a natural disaster

Water is becoming the new oil
